Lozärn Carmenere 2018
“ Don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity to taste the first Carmenere completely grown and produced in South Africa.”
In 2012 winemaker, Salome was enjoying a fine Chilean Carmenere and needless to say, it was love at first sip. This led to the planting of a Carmenere vineyard two years later.
This is, as far as they can ascertain – the first single vineyard of Carmenere in South Africa.
The wine spent a total of 14 months in French oak barrels (60% new) giving it a beautiful deep purple colour and mocha aftertaste.
Still young for a Carmenere, but already drinking superbly.
Only 270 bottles available
